David Lowery’s A Ghost Story

This year’s programme will include a few new things. For the first time, the London event will screen a “Surprise Film” where no details about the film will be given and the title will be revealed only when the credits start rolling. An Audience Favorite award will also be introduced, which will allow those at the festival to vote for their favorite films and the winner will be announced on the last day of the event.

Additionally, the Special Events part of the festival will be comprised of three panel events and an “In Conversation” event. The three panels will be the “Independent Film Trumps Reality” panel, the “On Collaboration: Documentary Practices and Process” panel, and lastly the  “Art vs. Stepping Stone” panel. Director, David Lowery will participate in the ”In Conversation” part of the festival, where he will give advice about the filmmaking process before he closes the four days of film with his newest work.
